I'm sure most of you are aware by now that Amtrak will have to start shutting down next week if Congress and the Administration don't come up with over 200 million dollars in interim financing. Norm Mineta and the White House have chosen to fiddle while Amtrak burns down. I urge all of you to e-mail your Senators, Representatives, and President Bush asking them to act immediately to prevent such a shutdown. The President's e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org , you can get your Senators' (2) e-mail at www.senate.gov/contacting/index.cfm and you can reach your Representative by going to www.house.gov/writerep/ Those of you who participate in other fourms, pass those addresses and URL's on. I'll do it on the Atlas N Forum if it ever somes back up.
